July 10, 1986
LK & Associates was formed by Lonnie Kaplan in 1986. Lonnie had previously created two companies in the early 70's known as Third Century Marketing and K&C Marketing.
LK & Associates' main goal, since its formation, is to provide the best in class service and account management on behalf of our manufacturer partners.
Through the years, we have added additional product lines to help meet the increased demand in the AV latest technologies.
2006 - LK Stockroom
LK Stockroom, the stocking arm of the manufacturers rep company, LK & Associates, Inc was created. Since its conception the stockroom provides just in time inventory for our dealer base in Florida. Initially designed to only stock the lines we represent, we've added quality lines to better suit our dealers' needs.
LK & Associates has grown to be one of the most successful and respected Manufacturer Rep companies in the CI industry. Nowadays, Lonnie Kaplan is semi-retired, but he is still involved with specialty accounts and his son Seth Kaplan is the principal at LK & Associates.
When asked what makes him most proud of his 30 year tenure, Lonnie replied, "It's the relationships with our clients and the manufacturers we have represented. They are partners and friends. We know they rely upon us and that we share the same level of commitment and dedication."
Seth Kaplan added "Our dealers are our lifeline and we never forget that."
What's next for LK & Associates? You'll just have to wait and see!
